Yes, we moved… from our office in Uvita to a new, larger space in Ballena, just a quick drive down the Costanera Highway. Ballena and Uvita are both home to the Marino Ballena National Park, an area that is vibrant with wildlife, as well as, electric green and blue hues.
Ballena is only 7 kilometers south of Uvita, at kilometer marker 169. Our new office is in the same building with the used clothing and furniture boutique Adorable and the Roadhouse 169, the hottest new restaurant and bar along the Costa Ballena. If you want to find us on a Google Earth map enter: 9° 7’23.84″N by 83°42’4.88″W.
Why did we move?
The landscape of Costa Rica real estate continues to evolve. As wonderful as a prime location with big windows sounds, 99.9% of buyers do not window shop and buy. In fact, plunking down $100,000 for an ocean view lot while on vacation (a phenomenon that was a frequent occurrence as recently as five years ago) is more rare than a Resplendent Quetzal at the beach. The three primary ways potential buyers contact us are–
- Google “Costa Rica real estate” or “Dominical (or Uvita) houses for sale”, or some version thereof, and find this blog or our listing website.
- They view one of our property videos or Talk Shows on our You Tube channel.
- Visit Dominical.biz while planning their vacation Dominical and areas south like Uvita.
If you need to sell your property here on the Costa Ballena, please contact us by phone at 011-506-2786-5407 or email us at email@example.com. If you want a little more information on the best way to list your property, including our new Modified Exclusive program, please watch this video.
For those sellers who are already taking advantage of this service, do not worry. We are in constant contact with the other agents in the area. They are aware of your Modified Exclusive Listing. In fact, I am showing three of these exclusive properties today!
If you follow the kilometer markers south out of Uvita, you will quickly arrive at km 169. The building (pictured above) is just before the turn for the Crystal Ballena Resort; on the right (or beach) side of the highway. So… come on down, grab a beer from the bar, and let’s talk real estate.
My first visit to Costa Rica was in 2002. I immediately fell in love with the warmth of the climate and people. After spending two weeks in San Jose, Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean side, and Tamarindo in Guanacaste, I knew there was a good chance I would return sooner than later. Sooner came just 6 months later when my uncle mentioned he was flying down to Costa Rica to close on a piece of property in the Southern Pacific Zone. On that trip I found my own piece of paradise above the small town of San Buenaventura, home to the San Buenas Golf Resort. Two years and 8 trips later, I decided to move to Costa Rica full time. Every day I am thankful for that decision.
